Hi everyone! My husband has recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after a nasty 'attack' that left him feeling awful for quite some time. Being a typical bloke, he brushes everything off and I'm left trying to helping him and keep the house sorted and the kids alive! He's been put on an antidepressant but we're not sure how it will help long term. I know he'll never stop having fibromyalgia and it's all about finding ways to ease the discomfort when an attack happens. But if he misses one of his tablets, he's in agony again. He's done 3 weeks out of a 4 week course of med, but does he just go to see his doctor again when the course finishes but is still in pain? Will he always be in pain or will he have good days too? He stays active, eats well and takes paracetamol and ibuprofen when needed (although it doesn't help the pain much). How else can I help him? Thankyou for listening to me drone on, you've probably heard off many people in my situation! Carly
